15 MAC Eyeshadows to Start Your Collection

If you are anything like me when I first started purchasing MAC, you are probably overwhelmed by the 165+ eyeshadows that MAC currently offers. If you are just starting your makeup collection, you may be wondering where to begin. There is a wide spectrum of colors and finishes to choose from. I tried to provide not only a variety of colors, but of textures as well.

This list will provide a well-rounded start to your soon to be makeup addiction!

How to Become a Makeup Artist – Part 1

Here is part one of the Makeup Artist Series: Getting Started

GERMAN VIEWERS:

Marlena’s 3 P’s to Getting Started as a Makeup Artist

Practice
  • This is your most important preparation as makeup artistry is a skill to be improved on. Going to school will not bring you a better job- your skills and determination will.
  • You need to practice on tons of different people- various face shapes, eye shapes, skin colors, eye colors, and ages.
  • Make sure to photograph all of your looks as this will show you later on where you need to improve AND how your makeup translates to pictures. Makeup in real life looks very different from makeup in pictures- it tends to get washed out and not be as vibrant.
  • You do not need an expensive pile of makeup, but you do need to invest in a variety of brushes and use makeup primers. Using different brushes especially for the eyes will give you different looks based on how you use them. (See my brush video if you need more information)
  • Ask other makeup artists, friends, and family members what they think of your work- tell them to be honest, as genuine criticism is how we improve! (It hurts, I know, but it makes us better ;) )
  • Sign up to be a makeup assistant- this will be some of your best education as it is practical. You can sign up on www.makeupmentors.com
Portfolio
  • You can have 2 types of portfolios- a print one and an online one. An online one is better (in my opinion), as it reaches more people and can be viewed at any time.
  • If you do a printed portfolio, standard sizes of your pictures should be 9×12 or 11×14. Put these pictures in a professional looking leather binder with plastic sleeves in them. This will be a somewhat pricey project, but worth it if you plan on taking it with you to meet with potential clients.
  • For online portfolios, you can purchase your own domain name and use wordpress to post your pictures. You could hire a local web designer or even a college student taking web design to help you put your site together. There is nothing wrong with using a blog template either as long as it looks professional. DO NOT use myspace or facebook to host your portfolio- it looks unprofessional!
  • Hire a professional photographer to take pictures of your work- no, do not have your neighbor Billy Bob do it. You do not want to spend so much time, money, and effort putting together a great look just to get an average looking picture. Find 2 or 3 local models of various types to work with you for a day and do various styles of makeup on them. Then have your photographer take various shots of each model- make sure to get some headshots also.
  • Your portfolio needs to consist of various styles: clean makeup (simple but flawless), editorial makeup, avant garde (experimental makeup), and beauty makeup. Do not put bridal makeup in your portfolio- have a separate portfolio of your bridal work if you plan on going this route for your career.
